This three-day instructor-led course is aimed at database professionals who are looking to implement a Cosmos DB solution.

Microsoft On Demand
Microsoft Official Courses On-Demand (MOC On-Demand) blend video, text, hands-on labs and knowledge checks to help you build your Microsoft technology skills on your own schedule, at your own pace and in your own place. No need to spend time and money travelling to a classroom location or adhering to classroom hours with a computer and an Internet connection, your Microsoft Official Courses On-Demand come to you, any time.
  • Microsoft On Demand covers the same objectives as the classroom course by the same name
  • After you activate your course, you have 3 months to complete it. You can work on your course at any time throughout the 3-month period after you activate the course.

Audience Profile
The primary audience for this course is database developers and architects (IT professionals, developers, and information workers) who plan to implement big data solutions on Azure using Cosmos DB.

Prerequisites

In addition to their professional experience, students who attend this training should already have the following technical knowledge:

  • The fundamental concepts of partitioning, replication, and resource governance for building and configuring scalable applications that are agnostic of a Cosmos DB API.
  • A basic working knowledge of the Cosmos DB SQL API.

Course Objectives

After completing this course, students will be able to: 

  • Describe the purpose and architecture of Azure Cosmos DB.
  • Describe how to design documents and collections to meet business requirements, and how to use the SQL API to build applications that use these documents.
  • Describe how to create user-defined functions, stored procedures, and triggers.
  • Describe how to tune a database, and how to monitor performance.
  • Describe how to create efficient Graph database models using Cosmos DB.
  • Describe how to use Azure Search, HDInsight, Azure Databricks, and Power BI with Cosmos DB to query and analyze big data.
  • Describe how to use Cosmos DB as a source and sink for streaming data.
